How does losing an hour make you feel?

In 24 days, on Sunday, November 3rd, Daylight Savings Time ends. It's one of the saddest days of the year for me. Days are getting shorter, now more dark than light, and the sun will go down before 6pm here in the northeast.

I now go around turning on lights, fighting to avoid the cabin fever and light deprivation that comes with winter. It's easy to get depressed when it is dark when you get up in the morning and dark before you go home at night.

How does the loss of another hour of daylight make you feel? How do you cope with the short days and long nights?

I'm fine with it. I just wished they have had left it on the last Sunday in October instead of changing it a few years back.

Most of the farmers around here don't see the point of switching. Interesting since the concept was developed to aid farmers.
Personally, I don't mind the fall one, but the spring one I hate. Losing that hour screws me up for weeks

Fortunately, being a night person...or someone who likes the dark, it doesn't bother me. Maybe I'm just a ditz but I really don't feel any different gaining or losing an hour...I move the clock up or back and well...that's just what time it is now.

It gets dark when it gets dark and in the winter that comes early. An hour either way, for me isn't significant. I like turning on lights in the evening, looking out my windows at lights coming on around me, the glow of it from others windows. For me there's a peacefulness in looking around my home in the soft light and feeling snug, warm 'n safe.

I'm probably more affected by it being so light so late in the summer. 10:00 and it's just finally getting dark? That makes for too long a day for me and sometimes it gets on my nerves. Kids are still running the streets and hollering, dogs barking at the kids. It's almost midnight before the neighborhood quiets down. Friends wanna hang around longer 'cause it still seems early.

I welcome the days getting longer and it staying light out longer but on the other hand, I welcome more the days getting shorter and darkness curtailing summer activities and the softness of night time enfolding me in peace 'n quiet.

I thought the "smart" clock was was programmed to change on it's own for daylights savings time. Then President Bush changed it, now my alarm clock gets it wrong every time. Oh well.....isn't anything to get bent out of shape over.

I really don't let it get to me. It's a few short months really, although for some who suffer severe cases of cabin fever, it can feel like forever.

It used to mess with mind when it got dark so early, but one adapts.

I tend to be nocturnal so I like the longer nights, Spring and the longer days is usually what throws me off,
